Artwork Explained: Heimdall

Artwork Explained: Heimdall

This week we launched the jaw dropping, Norse inspired, Heimdall apparel range.

This collection is inspired by the all-seeing and all-hearing protector of the Bifröst himself. This design is captivating and filled with three dimensional depth and shading and genuinely tells a story of the Gods, Asgard and the gate allowing entry into this magical realm. 

Heimdall or Heimdallr, in Old Norse was the watchman of the gods. Heimdall was Called the shining god as his skin glowed, Heimdall resided at the entryway of Asgard, where he guarded Bifröst, the rainbow bridge that connects Asgard, the world of the Aesir tribe of gods, with Midgard, the world of humanity.

Heimdall required less sleep than a bird, could see 100 leagues, and could hear grass growing in the meadows and even the wool growing on sheep. Heimdall kept the ringing horn, Gjallarhorn, which could be heard throughout heaven, earth, and the lower world; it was believed that he would sound the horn to summon the gods when their enemies, the giants, drew near at the Ragnarök or better known in modern times as dooms day, the end of the world of gods and men. When that time came, Heimdall and his enemy Loki would slay each other.

The centre front artwork in this collection features a mirrored image of Heimdall sided by the mighty Fenrir, and a depiction of Bifröst in the middle. On the sleeves of this collection is a depiction of the Gjallarhorn and Hofund, Hofund is Heimdall's sword which he used to open the Bifröst. On the back of this collection is a depiction of the mighty gates to Asgard and the Bifröst leading up to this entry point where Heimdall resides.

We hope you love this collection just as much as we do, stay tuned for some more show stopping designs coming soon!!!
